Starting a Business in Lumpkin Co.

Once you have chosen a tentative location for your business, contact Dahlonega City Hall if your business will be located within Dahlonega city limits or the Lumpkin County Planning Office if elsewhere in the county to determine the permitted uses of that location. There might be special restrictions on that area. DO NOT INVEST ANY MONEY IN A LOCATION UNTIL ZONING HAS BEEN THOROUGHLY RESEARCHED!!! Dahlonega City Hall or The Lumpkin County Planning Office can help you determine if your location and type of business are in compliance with ordinances. You will be required to submit your business plans to the city and/or county offices to determine if the business complies/can be adapted to comply with the following:

1. Current zoning classification

2. Building setbacks

3. Off-street parking availability and service entrance requirements

4. Buffer yards or required screening

5. Lot area minimum

6. Sign regulations

*** Sign permits are required for erecting and placing any mounted or free-standing signs. Applications are filed through City Hall for Dahlonega or The Lumpkin County Planning Office for the county. For specific information about signage, Dahlonega City Hall can be reached at (706) 864-6133 and The Lumpkin County Planning Office can be reached at (706) 864-6894.

If your plans do not/cannot meet these specifications, you can discuss options with Dahlonega City Hall or The Lumpkin County Planning Office. If you find the current zoning classification of your potential location does not allow for your business, you may file an appeal for rezoning. In order to file this appeal, contact Dahlonega City Hall. There are no zoning regulations for the county, only land use regulations.
